Designed in the mid 1800s, a rare opportunity has arisen to purchase this imposing Category B listed, seven bedroom period property. Originally designed and built for Captain Thompson, a seafaring man and originally called “Shanghai” after his most frequent port of call, Forvie House is located in the charming coastal village of Newburgh. Situated within walking distance of the Ythan Estuary and Forvie Nature Reserve the house is within ideal commuting distance of Ellon, Dyce, Aberdeen and Peterhead. Having been thoughtfully and lovingly refurbished throughout by the current owners this beautiful family home which spans three floors, retains many of its original features such as ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, picture and dado rails, fully operational shutters in many of the rooms, together with period fireplaces in both public and bedroom areas. On entering the property the entrance hall is lined with original wood panelling to picture rail level and sets the tone for the whole house. Overlooking the front of the house are the lounge and dining room, both finished with solid oak flooring. The most elegant lounge features an ornate fireplace with wood burner inset whilst the spacious dining room has a faux marble fire surround with gas fire inset. Double doors lead from the entrance hall to the main reception area with a sweeping staircase leading to the upper levels. From here access to the study and family room are gained. A further door leads to the rear of the house where the well appointed kitchen and utility room are situated. This lovely dining kitchen is fitted with a range of high quality base and wall units, integrated appliances, natural wood block work surfaces and Belfast sink with antique style tap. The high quality shaker style finishings are continued through to the utility room.
